The names Jannes and Jambres (Greek: Ἰάννης, Ἰαμβρῆς; Iannēs, Iambrēs) appear in 2 Timothy.
in the New Testament. Origen says an apocryphal book called The Book of Jannes and Jambres, contained details of their exploits. This book, known as The Apocryphon of Jannes and Jambres the magicians, exists in some Greek fragments present in the Chester Beatty Papyri No XVI (which has been translated by Albert Pietersma and in an extensive Ethiopic fragment which was discovered in 2014.)
Jewish traditions in the Targums preserve other legends. J&J are called the sons of Balaam, the prophets of Peor. It was also said that they converted to Judaism and left Egypt at Exodus with Moses and the Israelites; but died on the way, either at the parting of the sea, or the destruction of the Golden Calf, or at the slaughter of Korah and his follower.
Apart from opposition to Moses there are other legends about the Egyptian sorcerers; it was said that during the end of their days they had occult knowledge to embark on a journey to the Jewish world to come. They were not welcome and the angels of the first few heavens fought them but they could not evict them due to the potent talismans worn by the wizards. As they entered the fourth heaven they met Michael and Gabriel; legends say the battle was balanced, but in the end it was the angels who had to fall back. (🤣 yeah right) Upon entering the fifth heaven they were met by none other than Metatron, who did not come at them with defiance or anger but appeared accommodating, after conversing for a short time convincing Jannes and Jambres to remove their talismans, leaving them vulnerable. Metatron threw them out of heaven with a wave of his hand and they lost all memory of the event.
The Book of Jasher refers to the magicians by the names Jannes and Jambres.
The name of Jannes occurs in Pliny the Elder\\\'s Natural History (XXX, II, 11) Pliny refers to Jambres and Iotape as famous magicians of antiquity related rather than against Moses; Pliny\\\'s citation is also referred to in Apuleius. Numenius of Apamea, a Neopythagorean philosopher, who called them sacred Egyptian scribes. The Gospel of Nicodemus also refers to the magicians by the name of Jannes and Jambres. Josephus spoke about the confrontation in Antiq. Of the Jews book 2 ch 13, Paragraph 2.

Matthew 7:1-3 Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother\\\'s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
